Crafting Calm for Creativity and Contemplation

"If you only have five minutes [to craft] that's long enough to lift your heart, to raise your inspiration." ~ Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon

As some of you know, I produce the Arts and Healing Network's Arts and Healing Podcast where I get to talk with all kinds of people about the healing power of art. In the most recent show, I chatted with Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon about her wonderful book, Crafting Calm: Projects and Practices for Creativity and Contemplation.

Rev. Shannon is an interfaith minister, spiritual director, workshop and retreat facilitator, and lifelong crafter whose passion is exploring the relationship between creativity and spirituality.

A former magazine editor and creativity coach, she is the the author of five previous books, including Prayers for Healing. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and young daughter (who also loves to craft), and currently serves at the Spiritual Director of Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco. You can connect with Maggie on her website, on Facebook and on Pinterest.

It was lovely to talk with Maggie, and learn more about how she uses crafting for creativity and contemplation. I think you'll enjoy the interview ( :
